1ST CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: 3rd Annual Conference of the Philosophy of Language Association

University of Massachusetts Amherst – September 20-21, 2024 

Keynote speakers: Angelika Kratzer (UMass Amherst) and Dilip Ninan (Tufts University)

The Third Annual Conference of the Philosophy of Language Association will take place at UMass Amherst on September 20-21, 2024. The goal of the conference, and of the association, is to provide a venue for philosophers of language to discuss new work in all areas of the field. 

Call for abstracts: We welcome submissions of abstracts of at most 1000 words (including footnotes, excluding bibliography). The plan is to have presentations of one hour, split between the talk and the Q&A, with 4 selected papers presented on each day of the conference.

We encourage submissions from philosophers who work in philosophy of language, broadly construed. We particularly want to encourage submissions from women, LGBTQIA people and members of other groups that have been marginalized in our field. 

Deadline for submission: April 15

Notification of acceptance: May 15 

Submissions should be prepared for blind review, and submitted as PDFs with a separate PDF as cover sheet that includes: the author’s name, gender (optional), institutional affiliation, contact information, and paper title. One abstract may be submitted per person. 

Attendance at the conference is free, though unfortunately there are currently no funds available to cover travel or accommodation costs of those attending. 

Please send your submission to [email protected]

For questions, please write to [email protected]

The organizers: Guillermo Del Pinal, Eliot Michaelson, Alex Radulescu, Katherine Ritchie, Una Stojnić, Emanuel Viebahn, Julia Zakkou.
